A message from your Principal

Welcome DREAM Middle School Families,

We are so excited to welcome our new sixth grade families to our DREAM community and so thankful to have our returning seventh and eighth-grade families. This year is certainly a different year but our commitment to support and love continues to be the foundation of our school community. We hope this website helps you find useful information to all things middle school. As questions come up please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Sending so much love to you and your families,

-Mrs. Dodge

Middle School Updates

  • New Math Block: Starting 2/1, students will have two Math blocks on their remote days. The second Math block will take the place of Science. See your students schedule for more information!

  • For 5th Grade Families: You may have received a letter from the Department of Education alerting you that applications opened up for you to apply to NYC Middle Schools. DREAM serves grades PreK - 12 and your student has an automatic seat in 6th grade (no need to apply). We look forward to seeing your student play, learn and grow with us throughout high school.

  • MAPS Newsletter: Click here to check out the latest edition of the MAPS Newsletter to see what your students are learning in Music, Art & Invention, and PE!

  • Quarter 3 Updates

      • In Quarter 3, all 6th graders will have Music twice a week. Hybrid students will have Ms Briccetti on their in person days and will not need to attend remote class. Remote students will attend one synchronous class on either Thursday or Friday and one asynchronous class on Monday or Tuesday. Please refer to your students schedule for more information.

      • In Quarter 3, all 7th and 8th graders will have Art & Invention twice a week. Hybrid students will have Mrs Stewart on their in person days and will not need to attend remote class. Remote students will attend one synchronous class on either Monday or Tuesday and one asynchronous class on Thursday or Friday. Please refer to your students schedule for more information.

  • We need your help! We have noticed that fewer scholars log into their ZOOM classes after lunch, log in late or leave early but we do not want them to miss out on their learning. Please help ensure scholars are logging into their ZOOM classes after lunch on time and stay for the entire duration of their classes.
